Based on an approach of Affentranger & Schneider we give an asymptotic formula for the expected number of k-faces of the orthogonal projection of a regular n-crosspolytope onto a randomly chosen isotropic subspace of fixed dimension, as n tends to infinity. In particular, we present a precise asymptotic formula for the (spherical) volume of spherical regular simplices, which generalizes Daniel's formula.
